Orthodontics San Diego

3D-printed appliances made right here in San Diego

At San Diego Smile Pros, we harness technology to streamline patient care and create better results. One of our favorite tools that helps us do that is our in-office 3D printer. It gives our orthodontist, Dr. Matthew Durschlag, complete control over the process of creating custom appliances, including clear retainers, mouthguards and indirect bonding trays. For patients, it means a faster turnaround and a perfect fit.

How Does 3D Printing Work?

Using digital scanning and software, Dr. Durschlag creates a computerized 3D model of your mouth or appliance. 3D printing technology translates this into a printed model. The model is placed in a vacuum forming machine along with medical-grade, clear, BPA-free plastic to fabricate your custom appliance. Finally, we trim and polish it, and it’s all yours!
